Write down the radio's activation code prior to disconnecting the battery' s negative terminal.

Remove the air-intake duct and the air filter housing. (assuming this your car is 4-cylinder)
Remove the bracket that runs between the inlet manifold and the starter-motor.
The starter-motor is by the left-side of the transmission over the axle-shaft.
Disconnect its solenoid wire and the positive wire attached to the starter-motor.
Remove the three 14mm bolts holding it up.
Once taken out, exchange it for a rebuilt one at your local autoparts store.
Installation is reverse of removal.

SOURCE: how to replace starter

Keep in mind that the engine sits in there sideways, so the "back" of the engine, or flywheel is actually on the driver's side (the front is on the passenger side). The starter for any vehicle is at the flywheel. Raise the vehicle and crawl underneath from the front on the driver's side. Look for the oil filter. Slightly above and to your left (toward the driver's side wheel well) is the starter. It looks to me like you'll need to drain the motor oil and remove the oil filter to have room to remove the starter.

96 mazda 626 not shifting into 4th gear


You basically need the trans rebuilt. The only way the speed sensor could affect any of the shifting problems is if it broke off into the trans. somehow. You could try checking the trans fluid first, or having it changed.

Can't get at the back bolts of the starter of my 96 626 mazda.Any tips?


try a little "W-D 40" or similar stuff.

Soak the bolts (near the threads) and let it sit for awhile.

Make sure you have your socket wrench turned the correct way for "loosen". << Believe it or not, this is a common mistake.

1999 mazda 626, 4cyl. Car will not restart after running. If the car sits for several minutes (~15-30) the car will restart and run fine.


Sounds like a possible starter problem if the starter will not turnover the car's engine when hot. Change the starter.

Transmission slippage 96 Mazda 626


I have a 626. There's no good news here. Your transmission is gone. Try JDM engines and see if they can get you one. I think their website is JDMengines.com. They are who we deal with to find low mileage replacement motors and transmissions.
